Ted was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and uncle. He lived happily alongside his loving wife Anna of sixty five years and together they created a beautiful family of their own.
He leaves behind his wife Anna and their three children, and their spouses, George (Brita), Dorothy (Guy) and John (Sandra), 8 grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was an uncle to Danuta, Zbyszek, Iwonna, Beata, Ken and Meg.
In 1957 he was appointed as Mayor of Lidzbark, Warminski, Poland where he met his future wife at a May Day Picnic Dance.
Ted loyally worked for HA Simons Engineering Company for 34 years and his position took him to places abroad to explore more of the world.
Ted was a remarkable, generous man that impacted many people’s lives. He had many interesting stories that he would share with family and friends about his life events during the war.
His love of learning and discussing politics and current events lasted throughout his life until the time he passed away.
During his retirement he spent most of his time with his family, travelling and visiting family in Europe, the Philippines and Canada.
